Türkiye-Libya energy MOC a 'dangerous development for Greek interests', says SYRIZA

The signing of "new memoranda of cooperation between Türkiye and Libya in the energy sector on the basis of the illegal memorandum of November 2019 constitutes yet another extremely unfavorable and dangerous development for the interests of Greece," SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance party said in a statement on Monday.

This announcement, continued the main opposition party, "comes only a few days after [Greek Prime Minister] Kyriakos Mitsotakis met with the head of the Libyan Presidential Council, Mohamed al-Menfi, at the [77th] UNGA, without even raising the issue of the illegal Turkish-Libyan memorandum, and after two years of systematic exclusion of Greece from European sessions on Libya, in which Türkiye actively participated."

It also comes "a few days after Mr. Mitsotakis publicly confirmed that Greece's 'red line' is the defense of its sovereignty at 6 nautical miles, and not the defense of its sovereign rights in the EEZ and its continental shelf," Syriza continued, emphasizing that "in this context, Türkiye announces -for the first time- investigations west of the 28th meridian in the Eastern Mediterranean on the basis of an illegal memorandum."
